Dating with girls from yemen
This is due to the specific reading of Shari'a, which restricts the rights of women.Today, many Yemeni activist women believe that Shari'a can be interpreted to further include women in the social, political, economic, and cultural life of the country.Women in Yemen have historically been placed at a disadvantage due to their gender, with the society highly patriarchal.Although the government of Yemen has made efforts that will improve the rights of women in Yemen (including the formation of a Women's Development Strategy and a Women Health Development Strategy), many cultural and religious norms, along with poor enforcement of this legislation from the Yemeni government, have prevented Yemeni women from having equal rights to men.
The events have been brutal, and have had cruel consequences on all civilians, but especially on the lives of women and young girls.Likewise, provisions in the Penal Code increase the vulnerability of women to violence.Article 232 of the Penal Code allows for reduced and lenient sentences of men convicted of so-called "honour killing".While Article 40 and 41 of the 1990 unification constitution of Yemen stipulates that all citizens are considered equal before the law and that “Every citizen has the right to participate in the political, economic, social and cultural life of the country” gender discrimination is prevalent in Yemen.
The addition of Article 31 to the constitution, contradicts article 40 by stating that "Women are the sisters of men..have rights and duties, which are guaranteed and assigned by Shari'a and stipulated by law" has seemingly nullified the equality extended by the constitution due to its use as a base for discriminatory laws.
The Queen of Sheba, for example, “is a source of pride for the Yemeni nation”.
